It was the glimpse of forest wagtail that made me stop and observe while on tiger safari at Kanha. This avian has recently been observed at Jabalpur City Nearby. Earlier we saw orange breasted green pigeon in this tiger reserve which I have mentioned before.
The sight of Besra was thrilling event. The bird was perched on a tree at height of about ten feet off the Kanha Ghat main road. Some of the birds like Osprey are late visitors here and arrive post February.
Another interesting find which I mentioned earlier was Oriental Scops Owl in the garden of Courtyard House Resort at Kanha. I am still waiting for Rufus Bellied Eagle to appear again here like it did last year.
Observing a gathering of lesser adjutant stork was interesting. They are usually solitary. Another encouraging sight was that of large number of juveniles of White Back Vulture in the tiger reserve.
I am excited that during my future tours I would be able to make new observations.
